Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + Get Android 9.0 Pie
Before we cover the highlight features that Android 9.0 Pie brings to Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 +, we have to note that this is a huge update and everyone is advised to download it over a stable Wi-Fi network instead of mobile data. The update weighs in at 1.9GB and therefore, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + users need to also make sure to have at least 50% battery charge so that the smartphone doesn’t crash in the middle of the updating process.
RCS Universal Profile 1.0
Android 9.0 Pie is equipped with a plethora of features that are going to take the performances and user experience of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + to the next level. However, Samsung wanted to make things even better and it also added RCS Universal Profile 1.0 to the update.
The RCS Universal Profile 1.0 is a feature that makes it possible for Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + users to share large media files, join bigger group chats and even get notifications when someone from the group is talking. On the downside of things, the new RCS Universal Profile 1.0 feature is only available on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + devices that run on T-Mobile’s network.
